Day of Prayer for the Victims and Survivors of Abuse

The Day of Prayer for the Victims and Survivors of Abuse is an important initiative that was proposed by the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors. The Holy Father welcomed the proposal and asked that each Bishops’ Conference choose an appropriate date to mark the day. Our own bishops in England and Wales have chosen next Tuesday 17th of May for this to happen in our own countries. Click above for more details.

As part of the same initiative, we are opening a healing garden within our own diocese at the Cathedral Centre. There will be a formal opening this Sunday at 3pm. Click here for more details.
